Man convicted in attack on conservative Christian group scheduled to be sentenced in July

A Virginia man who pleaded guilty to three charges in a shooting that wounded a security guard inside the Washington headquarters of a conservative Christian lobbying group awaits sentencing in mid-summer.

A judge on Monday scheduled a July 15 sentencing for Floyd Corkins II, who prosecutors say planned a mass shooting at the Family Research Council in August. Prosecutors have recommended a 45-year prison sentence.

Corkins pleaded guilty in February to interstate transportation of a firearm, assault with intent to kill while armed and committing an act of terrorism while armed.

Authorities said the security guard was the only person wounded as he subdued Corkins in the lobby of the conservative group and Corkin fired three shots.

Corkins told authorities he had planned to kill as many people as possible.
